So you are set on a Vintage Theme for your wedding. Why not try and include Vintage cocktails too! Swap the standard glass bubbly for something more glam, whether it be a Champagne served with gold or a classic cocktail served in vintage crockery. It’s the little touches that will transport your guests into the vintage era.
1. The White Lady
The White Lady? A no-brainer for a bride’s signature drink! White Lady is light and fresh, blending the subtle botanicals of gin with the sweetness of Cointreau and the tartness of lemon juice.
2. Blush Champagne with gold sugar trim
For ultimate class, gold-sugar-rimmed champagne glasses are a must.
3. Vintage crockery
Choose your cocktail and service it in a vintage cup and saucer.
4. Mint Julep
This refreshing classic cocktail is said to probably have been created sometime during the 1700s. It originated as a medicinal beverage and was once made with a gin base instead of bourbon.
5. Sidecar Vintage Cocktail
Having a Gatsby-inspired wedding? Serve a prohibition-era cocktail, the Sidecar!
Cognac, Lemon Juice and Cointreau. Shake all the ingredients with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a lemon peel, and enjoy.
6. Ooh la la!
Take your champagne toast to the next level with a French 75 instead!
Combine the Gin, St. Germain, lemon juice and syrup, shake with ice, and pour into a chilled cocktail glass or champagne coupe. Top with the champagne – pour it slowly over the back of a spoon to get a great layered effect.
